the tee boxes were mostly dirt. you could find some grass here and there. the fairways were dry, The sand traps are compressed mud. The greens had quit a few dead spots. but they rolled pretty true.

This is a very good course and the 3rd time I have played here. There was a foursome 3 groups ahead of us that was slowing the pace of play down to a crawl. Two of them were playing from the tips and they were nowhere near good enough to be playing from the back tee. otherwise had a good time except it was hot as balls.

Ryan in the pro shop is always a pleasure to deal with! The course has been in worse shape recently but is improving. Challenging layout for a 23 handicap but very interesting..

The course is dry with no significant rain for the past few weeks we will come back when the grass has grown a bit. Ryan, in the makeshift pro shop is one of the nicest course employees anywhere. While working in this Corona Virus situation he is a real pro .

Not Great

The course is suffering from overplay and lack of attention. The greens are beginning to look like fairways and the fairways are beginning to look like rough. Needs some TLC.

Disappointing trip...

Drove 30 minutes to play this course... little did we know that the greens had been aerated / sanded recently and were just terrible... putting on this course was an adventure on most greens. The course overall was dried out ... in some areas burned out... and just not impressive at all. My playing partner and I were very disappointed. The course has a nice layout ... with lots of terrain variation... small, elevated greens but if I was a member there I would be livid. Perhaps a few months of rain in May & June will improve the situation. I hope so and maybe we will try again before the end of the summer... I would not spend any money there until June if I was you.

Busy day at course

Though I started as a single, I quickly caught and joined the threesome ahead of me. My game isn't great right now but I enjoyed the round with my new friends from WV. We played behind a foursome who also had a foursome in front of them so the round was slightly over 4 hours.

Excellent layout, friendly staff

Played this course several times. Love the challenging layout and elevation changes. Staff very helpful and friendly. Greens were not as good as usual, but still good. One of my favorites in the area.

I agree. The grass needs more attention, especially irrigation. The tees are deplorable. Several were just sand with no grass. The fairways and greens have the texture of rock. These conditions are caused by a lack of irrigation. The concrete golf cart pathways are broken in many areas. The entire course seems tattered. I do believe that the golf course is hanging on by its thumbs. It needs a redo, but I guess they can't afford it.

A challenging course!

Played this course twice in Feb/Mar 2020. We are decent senior golfers who enjoyed the layout, the challenging greens that are protected by sand traps, sloped and fast in spite of the top dressing. The fairways are in rough shape with lots of bare patches. Lots of leaves down which make seeing balls more difficult. This course is challenging with long carries (2 par 3s at 170 yards over 150 yards of water. You have to use good course management with many traps and water comjng into play.

maybe in a few weeks

Overall, I liked this course, lots of dog legs and some water to carry, at my skill level somewhat challenging in places. However, they recently sanded the greens and it was like putting at low tide on the beach...very fast in places, slow in others, mounded greens tended to make the ball roll off easily. I know maintenance must be done but wait a week or two before you go. I plan to go later on myself...based just on yesterday I would not
